Manhattan Beach is probably one of my favorite places to go in the LA area. With its relaxing atmosphere, generally uncrowded beaches, and Uncle Bill’s Pancake House, it’s basically impossible to not enjoy Manhattan. Conveniently, they have this gorgeous pier that just begs to be photographed from time to time. Every time I go back I try a slightly different spot so by now I have quite a collection. This is entry #1 in what I expect/hope to be my favorite series of HDR pictures.
